Showers are likely for parts of the North Island during the day on Saturday with the greatest chance for dry weather along the east coast from Gisborne to Wairarapa. "Snow totals ranged from 1.5" at the airport officially to as much as 13" in the foothills west of town. Scattered showers are likely through the day with highs in the mid 60s. Best heavy rain threat will be northwest of the area, but can't totally remove the possibility in our area.

"We expect heavy snow showers to start developing in places from midweek; many northern and western areas will be at most risk from Wednesday". That included one day where the temperature reached 74 degrees (on April 4) and one day where it reached 81 degrees (on April 10).

Meteorologist Mark Larson says it'll be brighter and warmer Wednesday but there's more gray skies and rain chances on the way to Kansas tonight and Thursday. A transient cold front will bring the highest rain chances of the forecast period on Friday. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 59.
